Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein for all documents regarding Daniel Richman.
Richman was the friend that Comey gave his memos to for the New York Times to leak in May of 2017.
The Comey memo leak was, in part, to secure a special counsel. The Daily Caller reports, “Comey has said that his goal was to force the appointment of a special counsel to continue the Russia investigation.”
It has been discovered that there is now proof that one piece of classified information was in one of the memos Comey handed over to his friend. And the lawmakers are asking for proof of Richman’s security clearance.
As reported by the Daily Caller:
“Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte and South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the GOP chairmen of the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees, are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for Richman’s work records as well as information regarding his security clearance.
Comey gave Richman four memos that he wrote after his meetings and conversations with Trump. Two of the documents contain classified information. Comey redacted classified portions of one of the memos before giving it to Richman. The Justice Department recently determined that another one of the memos contained classified information that Comey did not redact.
The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General is investigating Comey’s handling of the documents.”
Comey’s interviews with Bret Baier on Fox News Channel earlier this month. Trey Gowdy (SC-R) then gives an excellent synopsis of the Comey discrepancies on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show. Furthermore, Gowdy points out the information in transcripts versus what Comey is saying now.
Moreover, Gowdy says, “Jim Comey has a definition of the word LEAK that no one else has. What he says is a leak, is what the rest of us call a felony. Leaking is disclosing confidential conversation which is EXACTLY what he did.”
